Complete Player Camps: Complete Player Camps focus on the crucial keys to becoming a talented player. We break our teaching into four focus areas: Individual offense, defense, shooting, and team skills. Campers are separated into teaching groups and teams based on their age and ability.
Complete Player Camps emphasize extensive skill development, intensity, enthusiasm, leadership, and teamwork. Many athletes who have attended our program go on to play at the college level and beyond. NBC Camps' full-time staff work year-round to make NBC Camps the premier basketball camp in the world.
Complete Player Intensive Basketball Camp - This camp is designed for athletes ages 12-17. This camp is not for the beginning basketball player. Athletes who attend must have a fair amount of experience and ability appropriate for 6 to 8 hours a day of basketball. We recommend our complete player camp option to younger or more beginner athletes. Complete Player Intensive Basketball Camp will challenge athletes with more live-action skill development than the complete player camp and prepare athletes for more competitive play at the high school and college levels.
